Ours is the story born out of a sense of responsibility more than anything else. We had a great reputable sporting product that we wanted to put on the market but after experiencing rejection after rejection when approaching retailers with our product there was the realisation that many of the relationships that had been forged at the upper echelons of this industry would make it difficult, if not impossible, to crack into the leading industry retailers.
This cycle of having to constantly wait on others was deeply frustrating. Having been brought up on the concept of giving everyone a fair go and siding with the underdog, there was so much about this that felt awfully wrong….hence Sportsfinda was born. Ours is a story of leveling the playing field in the sport and fitness arena. Giving those that can’t crack the mainstream market, an arena in which to put their product out there. A homegrown, grassroots organisation that was adamant on giving all businesses a fair go.
